The videos of the torture went viral on Facebook on Friday. The prime aggressor has been on the run since the incident.
Locals identified the attacker as Happy Hossain, a fish hatchling trader of Jamtail Collegepara village in Sirajganj's Kamarkhand upazila. The victim who had been tied to a tree during the torture is yet to be identified.
The video clip shows that Happy had been saying to the victim: "I have already broken two of your fingers. I will break the rest of them as well, if you don't give me the names of the other thieves.”
The victim was let go after being tortured for about two hours.
